From Brianna Marshall, DSS Chair On behalf of the DSS preconference instructors:
“Earlier this spring, members of the Digital Scholarship Section Executive Committee worked together to plan a preconference focused on digital scholarship consultations in libraries, which we delivered last month at ALA Annual. We are excited to share our materials openly under a CC BY license so that the library community can use and adapt them to suit your needs! The preconference consisted of two main activities and accompanying supplemental materials, plus brief panel lectures.”

OCLC presents this seminar from Melissa Levine, Lead Copyright Officer at the University of Michigan Library. You many join virtually or in-person at 11:00 am Eastern on Tuesday, May 22.
As we think intentionally about issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, we recognize how free, open online collections make it possible for everyone to study primary evidence regarding race, religion, gender, national origin, indigenous peoples and more. But copyright touches almost all aspects of the work of libraries, museums, and archives. It affects what gets produced and how, what gets collected and preserved, who gets to see or use collections, and how they can be used. Copyright shapes what we are able to share online, whether they are in accessible formats, and raises questions about how to meaningfully support use and reuse.

From Ann Michael via The Scholarly Kitchen:
“Back in October of 2014, we asked the Chefs how they stay informed about scholarly publishing. Since several years have passed, we were curious if any of the Chefs had found new channels of information or new ways to effectively digest all that is going on around us. We also thought that it was past time to broaden the question and consider all of scholarly communications, not just publishing.
So this month we asked the Chefs: How do you stay informed about scholarly communications?”
